Calling Our Shots: Week Seven

Fantasy football can at times be a very funny place to seek help when you need it most. One week, a so called “expert” will tell you to start “Player A” because “Player A” is a “can’t miss” starter who will blow up that week. A week later, that expert will deny giving that advice to their readers or followers but will be more than happy to tell you to start “Player B” this week. It would be almost comical in some instances if it wasn’t so tragic for the people who take the advice of these charlatans.

As a staff member of DLF, I can tell you that everyone affiliated with this site both loathes and detests this behavior. Every staff member on the DLF team constantly tries to learn and better ourselves so we may be of better help to you. Part of that process is being accountable for our successes, as well as our failures. We’re doing that each and every week as we’re offering personalized lineup advice as part of our premium content. We’re answering every question posted in a timely manner and helping out as best we can – those answers are public knowledge and we’ll stand by them every week.

We’ve also decided to roll out this series entitled, “Calling Our Shots.” The premise of this series is to get some predictions for the upcoming week. Some writer’s predictions are bold, some are solid, while others, well, we wouldn’t place too much money on them in Las Vegas!

When we’re right, we’ll share our successes. When we’re wrong, it should present a great way for our loyal readers to give us a good (and hopefully friendly) ribbing. The point is we don’t hide from the advice we give or the predictions we make.

We also want to give you the same chance.

Our community is an essential part of the success of DLF. This weekly series also asks YOU, the readers, to post your own shots in the comments below. We all have that coach in our league who says, “Yeah, I could have told you not to start that guy” and perhaps that’s even you who thinks that! Well, here’s your chance to make those bold predictions when they count – before the games are played. We invite everyone to blow up the comments section again today and make any player predictions you want for the week – this will give you a perfect opportunity to officially say, “I told you so,” or offer a brutally embarrassing piece of ammunition for your opponent to use against you next week. Either way, this is a great way for the community and the writers to have some good old fashioned fun each and every week!

Every person who is featured in subsequent weeks will be put into a drawing after week 17 for a free yearly membership or their renewal to our premium content and a free DLF T-shirt!

Every week we talk about how unpredictable the NFL has been the prior week. While we did see some weird performances, such as Shonn Greene rushing for 161 yards (I mean seriously, who in the world saw that coming), we also saw a return to some normalcy. In a league that is often described as a passing league, we saw no fewer than 11 quarterbacks throw for over 300 yards, and this was with Drew Brees, a constant 300 yard performer, on a bye. Week six also saw ten 100 yard receiving performances, two of which had multiple touchdowns to boot in Jordy Nelson and A.J. Green. All in all, it was a nice return to normalcy and one which was sorely needed.

Unfortunately for the DLF staff, however, there was no return to normalcy in terms of our number of correct shots called. Week six saw another miserable week of only 12 correct shots called. Eric Olinger once again claimed the crown of DLF’s most accurate shot caller with a total of four correct shots called. The game in which the most correct shots were called was the Monday Night game between San Diego and Denver in which three of the 11 correct shots were called. Here are the correct shots for Week Six:

Eric Olinger – Carson Palmer throws for 300+ yards

Chris Rohrer – Browns get their first win of the season at home.

Jarrett Behar – Megatron 100+ rec yards

Eric Olinger – Mike Vick snaps out of his funk and picks up 300+ total yards.

TheFFGhost – Seattle holds the entire New England team under 120 rushing yards but Brady throws for over 300 yards.

Eric Hardter – Wes Welker again leads the Pats in receiving, leading to another weekly postponement of Brandon Lloyd’s “inevitable” breakout.

Eric Hardter – Put up or shut up time for Mario Williams, who responds with two sacks.

Eric Olinger – Kyle Rudolph finds the endzone this week.

TheFFGhost – Houston doesn’t have an answer for Cobb as he pulls in at least five receptions.

TheFFGhost – Rivers and Manning combine for over 550 yards combined.

Eric Olinger – Antonio Gates abuses the Broncos weak LB corp for his first multiple TD game of the year.

Andy Miley – Peyton and Rivers throw for over 300 yards and two scores each

The DLF team just barely missed on another five shots. These are the shots we almost hit on:

TheFFGhost – Leshoure goes for over 75+ total yards and gets a touchdown.

Chris Rohrer – Stafford gets back on track with over 300 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Andy Miley – Doug Martin gets back on track with 120 combined yards and a touchdown

Chris Rohrer – Welker has yet another 100+ yards through the air, but Brandon Lloyd gets the non-TE receiving touchdown.

TheFFGhost – Arizona comes out angry, at least three sacks by the Arizona defense, Buffalo’s defense matches the total though.

Our Week Six Shot Caller from the reader comments is BeastMode who had some pretty interesting shots called, some of which actually hit. BeastMode called a unique shot about Greg Zuerlein missing his first field goal from a ridiculously long distance (52 yards). Here are the correct shots BeastMode called:

Connor Barth scores more fantasy points than Brady Quinn.

Jeremy Maclin scores 1TD.

The leg, Greg Zuerlein, misses his first FG in Miami as Fisher called for another ridiculous long Fg with when ” Mr Bust” struggles to move the ball, again.

Wes Welker leads all receivers from both teams in yardage.

Cruz scores 1TD.

Arian Foster has less than 20 carries as Houston falls behind early (Houston D is overrated and will be exposed this sunday).

Antonio Gates blocks more than more in this game but score 1TD.

What’s fairly amazing about BeastMode’s called shots are that while he hit on several of his picks, he also just barely missed on a many more of them. The ones he just barely missed on were usually so close they too could almost be classified as wins. All in all it was a very strong showing from BeastMode and he takes home the Week Six title as well as enters himself into the year-end drawing for a free year of DLF Premium as well as a free DLF t-shirt. Good luck BeastMode!

Lots of people like to call the number seven lucky, let’s see if Week Seven turns around the luck of the DLF staff with these called shots:

Jacksonville @ Oakland

Eric Dickens – MJD goes over 100 yards against the Raiders D as the lone bright spot for the Jaguars.

TheFFGhost – At least one Jaguar will go for over 100 yards receiving, I have absolutely no idea who though. How else can I say that Oakland’s secondary is horrible but so are the Jaguars wide receiving corps?

Eric Olinger – Denarius Moore has his second consecutive 100 yard game.

Andy Miley – Start McFadden and MJD as they both go for over 125+ and a TD.

Detroit @ Chicago

TheFFGhost – No running back hits 100 rushing yards, Megatron hits 100 receiving yards, Marshall doesn’t.

Eric Olinger – This feels like an under performing type of game. 2+  INTs each for Stafford and Cutler.

Andy Miley – Hello BMarsh and welcome to a 8+ catch game!

Eric Hardter – Megatron finally reaches the end zone again, scoring at least twice.

Ken Kelly – Jay Cutler scores more fantasy points than Matt Stafford

We’d like to once again give a high five to BeastMode for winning Week Six and a reminder to everyone, we also grade called shots on creativity so if you are unsure how a game may play out then take an interesting guess about something that may occur in the game such as BeastMode did this week. While we absolutely judge for accuracy, creativity might just push your submission over the top.

Best of luck to all of our readers!

 Don’t forget, if we select your entry we’ll enter you into a drawing for a full year of DLF premium content and a free DLF t-shirt!

Thank you TheFFGhost for the shout out; I really appreciate it. But honestly, my performance was as flukie as Shonn Green, so I am not expecting a repeat this week. With that said, let me enter my reversion to the mean predictions now.

Cardinals vs Vikings

1-Percy Harvin continues to cement his status as an MVP candidate with another outstanding game: 90+ yards and 1TD

2- AP finally scores the long overdue TD, opening the door for more in the coming weeks.

3-Surprisingly, Jared Allen register zero sack–none, zilch, nada– against the porous Cardinals offensive line

Cowboys vs. Panther

1-Greg Olsen has a career game–120 yards, 1TD– as Steve Smith is blanketed by Dallas ferocious secondary.

2-Steve Smith runs short routes thus register 6 catches for less than 80 yards.

3-Felix Jones scores 1TD but underwhelms by rushing for less than 90 yards. The Panthers D front is small, thus Felix speed on the edges won’t faze them.

Saints vs Bucs

1-Lance Moore torches Bucs secondary which was bad but got worse with Aqib out for 115+ yards and 2 TD

2- Marques Colston scores less fantasy points than Lance Moore

3-Vincent Jackson scores 1TD, but Doug Martin got less than 15 carries.

Packers vs Rams

1-Randall Cobb meets its match in Cortland Finnegan: Less than 50 yards

2-James Jones gets yet another TD as Jordy Nelson is bottled up in the redzone by Cortland Finnegan.

3-Finally, finally TE J Finley scores a TD, granted he might ‘drop it’ after catching it.

Giants Vs Reds

1- Eli throws for 350+ yards to keep up with RG3 and both Cruz and Hakeem Nicks go over 100 receiving yard.

2- Cruz scores 2TD, salsa twice.

3- Hakeem Nicks scores 1TD

4-RG3 rushes 1TD on JPP’s side, lol.

Ravens vs. Texans

1-Dennis Pitta-nce scores 1TD and go over 60 yards receiving.

2-Joe Flacco, aka Joe the Plumber, throws for 300+ yards

3-Andre Johnson goes over 100 yards and 1TD

4- Arian Foster stop slipping, scores 2TD and goes over 100 yards

Titans vs Bills

1-Everyone regrets not playing Kenny Britt as he records at least 120 receiving yard and 2TD

2- CJ?K disappoints again with less than 85 yards and no TD

3- Steve Johnson scores 1TD

Browns vs Colts

1-Richardson has either 125+ total yards or less than 65 total yards–Boom or bust.

2- R Wayne scores 1TD

Oh, what a tale of irony I put up. “Josh Gordon truly establishes himself as Cleveland’s best receiver by simply not dropping passes.”

Oops.

Haha, he still did well in spite of your curse, Ken. I’m hoping he becomes a big part of that offense with as “meh” as Little has been thus far.

Speaking of Josh Gordon, is there anyone on your staff who has the number crunching ability to figure out Gordon’s aDOT(average depth of target) for this season so far? I’m curious to compare him to Julio’s numbers from last year.
